The freedom to access the technology you want, where and when you want it. The freedom to take advantage of the latest technology as a capital expense, or an operational one. The freedom to focus on running your business—not running IT systems. Microsoft cloud services are Microsoft by extension: Giving you the ability to make full use of the same Microsoft technologies you already know and trust, on a pay-as-you-go model. For a single department or an entire global organization. On-premises, offpremises, or a combination of both, depending on your business needs. Microsoft cloud services are Microsoft as a utility, but it is more than plugging into a utility. It’s the applications you know, the platforms you know, and a data center infrastructure—all working together in a cohesive whole. It’s Microsoft when you need it. Microsoft on your terms.

Much of this innovation has been locked away within corporations as they have made isolated progress on issues like security metrics, security risk management frameworks, and security policy. In order to address this discrepancy, Microsoft commissioned a whitepaper series to share key security innovations. Whitepaper topics came from participants in Microsoft’s CSO Council - a semi-annual gathering of security executives from leading global organizations who serve as advisors to Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing group. Our goal is to share practices “from-the-trenches” that address some of the toughest problems in security. After numerous interviews, discussions, and debates with these thought leaders, a collection of effective practices emerged. While much remains to be done, we hope these papers fuel the discussion and help facilitate further sharing in the field of IT security. Page | 19

If you’ve thought that “cloud computing” was some cheesy catchphrase meant for the Fortune 500, get ready for an eye-opener. All the lessons that Microsoft has learned since 2005 have been poured into the new Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS), a part of Microsoft Online Services. Essentially, BPOS is an enterprise-class, cloud-based messaging and collaboration platform that renders the old box-and- license software model obsolete. That’s a pretty grandiose statement, but bear with us and you’ll see what we mean. There is nothing else quite like BPOS on the market today, and, particularly in a down economy, it has the potential to save businesses of any size a lot of money and improve how they operate in the process.
